Welp, I canceled another date. I know what you are thinking. No wait, I don’t. I am afraid you might be thinking that all I do is set up dates and cancel them. Like the girls, I used to see at the polar bear dips in Barrie Ontario every January. Holes cut in the ice, […]
Even if he thought I talked too much. Which I do. For most people (male and female). That will probably tame down once I am balancing a more active platonic social life. And I am working on it. Hard.
No matter what the other person does to violate your love, trust, faith, generosity, and kindness, you’ll end up blaming yourself for all of it. You’ll pick up the tab, emotionally speaking, every time.
This is one of those topics that ruffles feathers. Tell a woman (or a man) who is emerging from a long-term relationship that they aren’t ready to date. Go ahead. I double-dog dare you.

Someone introduced me to a phrase that was new to me. Have you heard of ‘beta’ behavior? For someone who loves psychology as much as I do, and the dynamic of relationships, this was exciting.

It’s about connection. And I think for that reason, my needs and wants are antiquated. If those guys do exist, they are married. And some of them are married, pretending to not be married. It’s a minefield, this dating thing. And I hate it.
One of the reasons I write this blog under a pen name is so that I can tell the whole truth. The absolute truth about experiences I have. Without divulging other people that may be part of that story. While I may choose to live my life like an open book, as a writer, I […]
Let’s start with the preface that I don’t have a social life right now. Offline. Throughout the world I am really blessed with great friends and family. I use Facebook like an umbilical chord that connects us on a daily basis. I am the girl that moved away from home to the United States. I […]
I got invited to an event. A nice person coordinates a large, and really fun Facebook group. I spend too much time on Facebook. But in my defense, I live alone. I know no one in Austin, the new city I live in after selling our marital home. Sometimes I wonder why I moved here. […]
